Green America: Growing the Green Economy for People and the Planet

Full Circle Feed
Syracuse, NY

Congratulations to Fall 2016
People & Planet Award winner Full Circle Feed!

At Full Circle Feed our mission is to make the world a better place for pets, plants, and people! We believe dogs should enjoy food that's good enough for humans. Our treats are made with vegetables, meats, fruits, and breads from restaurant buffets that were prepared but not served. The result is a healthy, delicious, environmentally-sustainable dog treat! 

For far too long, our society has ignored and disposed of billions of tons of valuable extra food. Within this food there is energy and nutrients that can be captured and reused. Full Circle Feed does just that! Our innovative treats are made by upcycling high quality food to achieve full circulation of materials, nutrients, and energy. 

Benefits:

All Natural Ingredients: We use NO by-products, artificial flavors or colors, preservatives, or cheap fillers.  All of our treats are always made with fresh human-grade ingredients, by hand, in small batches.  This ensures the treats are extremely healthy for dogs and are veterinarian approved!

Sustainable: By saving perfectly good and nutritious food from going to the landfill we are preventing the release of methane - a potent greenhouse.  Further, instead of having to grow, harvest, produce, and transport new food; we can reuse delicious food that is ready to eat.  This reduces the environmental impact of treat production. Plus all our packaging is made from 100% recycled paperboard.

Hand crafted in the USA:  Our treats are made by people in small carefully monitored batches; they are not mass-produced by automated machines.  This ensures our treats are the highest quality and helps us employ more people in the local community.

How we started:
The idea behind Full Circle Feed was developed by Michael Amadori for his M.S. thesis at the SUNY-College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse, NY.  After winning an on-campus student business competition he worked with experts at the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine to perfect the production process.
